I can't find anything about kqemu & its status w.r.t. the upstream Linux kernel.

KVM is in the upstream & Fedora kernels, and uses QEMU code to do device emulation. Of course, that requires that your hardware supports virtualization, but that will become increasingly common in the next year or two. For performance issues with KVM you should ask upstream (eg. on kvm-devel mailing list, https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/kvm-devel).

VirtualBox is based on QEMU, right? Can you tell us what features it has that makes it distinctive? (I mean in the free version, not interested in proprietary features).

There's a project to abstract away the differences between virtualisation technologies so that, for example, the same command line and graphical tools can be used to manage Xen, QEMU, KVM (so far, others coming later).
